New Millennium Force pictures

Posted Monday, April 17, 2000 7:30 PM | Contributed by coasterbuff--jc

The pictures give you a bird's eye view from the very tip top. 310 feet to be exact.

Check em' out at www.cedarpoint.com and look under "current construction photos."

Whats the big deal, its tall and fast, so what? It takes alot more to make a coaster great than shear size and speed.

yes, the first hill will be pretty much heaven, but actually what im looking forward to in that machine is the island section. The 182 ft hill just looks to be insane, and 3 of the turns are basically horseshoe inversions. The first hill is just a nice way to push us through all the content. That pic was enough to make my friend gasp on his drink, cough like mad and end up throwing up in the toilet. Thats the sign of a nice first drop.

Even more than the first drop, i'm looking forward to the overbanked (122 degree) turn.
In Layman's terms you feel like you're gonna fall out!!! AWESOME!!! Who all is going to the AAA preview day?

You've ridden it? I thought it wasnt open yet. Says 25 days still to go on the web site. Oh, and to the remark on feeling like falling out on the overbanked turns, not likely. The G-Forces due to speed will eliminate that feeling. Ride Viper at Magic Mountain if ya wanna feel like you're gonna fall out.

I'd like to know how you've ridden it. The testing is'nt even finished on it. And even if it is finished the only people who designed or built it. It isn't open until May 13 but there is a AAA sneak preview on May 7.


and to Revolution--You've ridden it too? You dont know, maybe the overbanked turns will feel like you will fall out. Oh the power of brakes.
And if you are thinking "How will it get up the third 182 foot hill?" There may be boosters.
Just a possibility. I guess we will ALL find out for ourselves when we ride it.

Jeff's avatar G! Good to see ya... where've you been?

I laugh every time someone says it's "just" a 300-foot drop. Is there anything bland about that?

Does this new elevator lift system mean the end of the famous "clink, clink, clink"? If so, Millenium Force looses a major portion of what makes a coaster great.

Oh, coasterbuff, what kind of Super 310 foot coaster should require boosters?

Jeff's avatar It doesn't have much to do with the elevator lift... some of the chain-driven Intamin coasters are without noisy anti-rollback as well.

I'm sure that climbing 300 vertical feet in 20 seconds or so will probably keep your mind off of the lack of noise.

20 seconds??? You're kidding me! Where did you hear that?

You will not feel like your'e going to faqll out on the turns because you will be going so fast, and why would you need boosters to get up the third hill, you don't realize how fast a 300 foot drop will get you rolling.

Ok, here's the statistics of MF. The first drop is 300 feet. The second hill is like 169 feet. The third hill is a little bigger. Just because the third hill is bigger than the second does not mean that it will not have enough momentum to carry the coaster up the hill! Speed and mass = momentum. The cars are like 4 tons each? I may be wrong. I'm not sure.. That's why the second hill is so over banked. Your body will want to keep going up from the momentum while the coaster is pulling you down. Hence, keeping you in your seat from it! Now you will still be carrying speed of like maybe 70 - 80 MPH or so when you get to the third hill. You will make it with no problems at all... Again, the other hills are banked steeply so you don't fall out from lateral G forces. Believe me, if Intamin knew that this coaster wasn't safe for the public, they wouldn't have built it!

Jeff's avatar And the fact that it's been running for some time and people have been on it a few times should put everyone's mind at ease.

What is the deal with the names they're coming up with these days... Cedar Point has the MF'er and Kings Island has the SOB!... MF looks tough, BUT, it's a damn steel coaster. I bet SOB will be more frightening (the wood thing+loop)... MF has an 80 degree drop????? SO WHAT!?, Drop Zone is nearly 300 feet tall and it's a 90 degree drop. When are people going to realize that Cedar Points two best rides are the Raptor and Mantis!

Cedar Point invested money into this coaster just so that they'll hold the top notch spot in 'best amusement parks'. (in my opinion). They held the record in 1989 with magnum and they want to keep the tradition! The coaster business is a fierce competition between parks. Two main rivals are CP and PKI. The difference is, PKI is bound to win. They have more land to build on than CP does. I myself don't want to see CP go down.. They might be able to buy land somewhere else. Who knows? Just a thought... Never know.. maybe PKI will not take over with the most coasters...We'll just have to see.. :)

Jeff's avatar Cedar Point does not have a space problem.

In any case, what gets Cedar Point the "best park" award is not just the rides. I would argue that the park's location is actually its greatest asset, not a hinderence.

I would also argue that Cedar Point does not directly compete with PKI anywhere except Columbus. For people in Detroit, Cleveland, Toledo and Ft. Wayne, Cedar Point is the biggest game in town.

I'm just saying the info that I have learned from my friend who works there..lol.. So this is hearsay for me I guess you could say. I guess it's more of PKI trying to keep up with the most coasters.

I agree, CP is situated perfectly, but is a staggering 200+ miles away for me... :) Wish I lived closer. I mean, it's surrounded with nothing but water. People go for that. You have the attraction of the park and the attraction of the beaches, and beach houses. Hence, more money!
